Great summer concert series and lovely flower gardens that make for a really lovely walk along the water. Have seen lots of engagement and wedding photos being taken here. It's quite picturesque.

Great place for a quiet walk through the gardens and along the harbor at no cost. Clean restrooms and entertainment for the whole family during the summer. Great photo ops and interesting, well-kept gardens.

There are very few places today that just allow a walk through for free. This park has such beautiful sights for a walk or a picnic. If you want entertainment, the summer is filled with plays, concerts & children's events. A great place to stop and smell the flowers!

We were shopping in a wonderful little shop, Puttin On The Glitz and the owner asked if we had been to the gardens. She gave us directions and off we went. What a great recommendation. We found the most beautiful little park with an amazing display of flowers and beautiful fountains less than a 10 minute walk from Market Square.... More

Prescott Park along the Piscataqua River is a mecca for the arts. Depending on the month that you visit you will find this park to have everything you can dream of. The late spring and summer gardens are outstanding, the summer music festival is one of the best in NE, the summer theater program never disappoints and the art festival... More

Prescott park offers amazing music and live stage theatre every summer. On the banks of the Piscataqua river, it's the crown jewel of summer in Portsmouth.

This public park is not to be missed. The flowers are gorgeous, the park is immaculate and well tended. A beautiful place to take a walk, sit and read, or just enjoy the great outdoors.

This is a great area to see the older residential streets adjacent to the park located along the waterway. There are several beautiful garden areas scattered within the park and lots of places to just sit and enjoy the outdoor ambience. It is within easy walking distance of downtown Portsmouth and also near Strawberry Banke if you are planning to... More
